are these "usage times" with finger or with stylys ? or is there even a
"big" difference on usage when you use (clean) fingers or stylys ?
(but there is a big difference if you drag your finger/stylys or just

im just curious cause i would use only fingers with the neo, as using
stylys is somewhat "slow" ( i regularly loose my palmvx stylys ;)

my palmvx screen looks like new (after many years), BUT thats highly
cause the programs (i use) are mostly "press a button" only (and i
scroll with the hardware buttons). but the character recognition area on
my palmvx is _very_ used!

so, yes, im concerned too about the display screen usage as we most
likely will drag our finger/stylys alot on the neo display screen...

btw. how thick transparent material (plastic/glass) can you put on top
of the screen and still be able to "touch the screen" ?
(i assume it depends on how flexible the transparent material is)


ps. the old palmvx is the only touchscreen device that i ever had and i
never had a cellphone. and as a big fan of open source, im VERY anxious
to get a neo1973 :)
